Avro Shackleton MR2. Interviews with the team from the Shackleton Preservation Trust at Coventry Airport who hope to return Avro Shackleton WR963 to flight. WR963 is one of the last of a dying breed of Avro aircraft; a descendant of the legendary Lancaster.   There were 185 Shackletons built; now none of them are airworthy and there are less than 20 left worldwide. Less than a handful of that number are still capable of running.
